ssd no need to defrag, in fact the file data is scatter around chips, if you defrag ssd it will shorten its life span
actually, the answer is a little more complicated than that its correct to say SSDs shouldnt be defragmented in its original sense. For people interested in some heavier reading

Do note to check the frequencies compatibility. Also, need to pay tax since it over 400?

Anandtech reviews the SP4 and finds:

* The heatsink spreads the CPU temperature around the entire laptop.
* Much less CPU throttling because of the better cooling
* The core m3 version is indeed fanless
* Type cover is significantly improved, stiffer with better key travel
* Pen and dock are noticably improved
* As a tablet it is the most powerful one yet
* As a notebook the i5 SP4 is about as powerful as Thinkpad X1 (i7-5600U)or Acer S7 (i7-5500U) and is about 20% more powerful than the SP3
* Graphics performance is much better than SP3, and better than the two ultrabooks
* SSD performance is much improved
* Display reaches 377 nits max, more than SP3 but less than S3
* Blacks are deeper than on SP3
* Battery life in browsing and light use is the same as SP3
* Battery life for video playback and heavy use is significantly better than SP3, but less than the ultrabooks
* Wifi card is identical to SP3
